> ITU-T Q13/SG15 has decided that management is out of scope of the PTP telecom profile for the time being.
> Telecom vendors have incorporated the management of packet timing into their network management systems.
So we can understand that this subject is not being handled by the ITU,
and that if there is interest in the IETF community that there is no conflict of interest here ?
That is reassuring.
> I don't see that the telecom companies have done a mistake in standards work that needs to be corrected by TICTOC.
But the telecom companies is not the only community of interest here,
in fact, it is probably not the main one.
In addition, working on MIBs in particular is traditionally an IETF function –
you will note that even for many ITU defined protocols, the MIBs are done here.
> Surely it is possible to raise the management issue again in Q13 if needed.
Of course, if we DO decide to work on this we would appreciate if Q13 would consult with us first.
